Yi-Tan Tech Community Call #371 - Industry Futures-
With all the turmoil that's going on, what path do you think various industries will take?
Let's examine them one at a time and dream up scenarios, plausible and less plausible, for their next 20 years.

Together, one sector at a time, let's discuss:
What forces are at work on that sector? Where do they point?
How might the sector therefore shift? Will it be slow or sudden?
When might we expect these shifts to happen?
